(Trigger Warning: This is a post about ad campaigns to prevent sexual assault)

You know what I like? Ads about sexual assault prevention. You know what I love? Ads about sexual assualt prevention that place responsibility with the perpetrator  rather than with the victim!

Check it:

Also? My magnificent friend, Michael sent me this super-rad list of Ten Rape Prevention Tips (something I’d been trying to track down for awhile). It includes wise nuggets such as:

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.

and

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

And many more.  Seriously, go read them right now! I’ll wait.

Avoiding being raped is a complicated, exhausting process that involves constant vigilance, avoidance, suspicion and psychic powers. Avoiding raping people is simpler. Don’t rape people.

Don’t be a rapist. It’s just common sense.
